"Deliciously fruity pinot with bright black cherry, cassis, blackcurrant and a suggestion of smoky oak. It has got ""drink me"" written all over it but it could surprise anyone with enough willpower to put it out of sight for a decade." Bob Campbell

Winery notes - A deliciously spicy Marlborough pinot, bursting with ripe fruit fragrance. Red and black cherries, super-ripe strawberries, dark-fleshed plums and juicy blackberries – poached with a stick of cinnamon, some cloves and a sprinkle of nutmeg. The ethereal, but finely structured palate combines concentrated varietal character, with earthy nuances and a distinctive smoky complexity.

Greywacke is the wine label of long-time Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd and is named after the rounded river-stones that are scattered through the soils of his vineyards. Sourcing his fruit from premium vineyards in the central Wairau plains and Southern valleys, Kevin produces a brilliant range of wines, primarily focusing on Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, with a small amount of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay. As you would expect from the founding winemaker of New Zealand's most famous wine, the quality throughout the Greywacke range is exceptional. Not satisfied with being one of the country's most influential winemakers, Kevin is also one of the world's premier wine and vineyard photographers
